Joe Arrow, a Mohawk Indian recently fired, sneaks into his former boss's apartment to beg him to give him his job back, but a scuffle breaks out and he ends up accidentally killing the man. Joe's frustration and anger keep dragging him deeper and deeper into trouble. Written by
The American Indian culture of New York City gets a look in this episode of Kojak where Stephen Macht stars as a Mohawk who lives in Brooklyn and does construction work in high places. Indians of all backgrounds are hired to work the steel girders of our skyscrapers and Macht is an unemployed one right now in difficult financial circumstances. Macht lives off the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn. I recall in the Boerum Hill section of Brooklyn there is a bar that does cater to them and I believe it is on Hoyt Street.
Anyway I had my troubles wrapping my mind around the concept that this one person would fixate on a certain rich man whom he somehow thinks can help him financially because of an offhand remark and then think that breaking into his high rise apartment in the middle of the night and surprising him that the man would help. During a struggle with Macht the victim was killed and Macht made off with a fortune in diamonds.
Telly Savalas reasons out the crime, but has absolutely no evidence to arrest Macht. It's a waiting game that Savalas and the squad play until Macht decides to give himself up. He's not a killer at heart and Kojak knows that. He does have the devil's own temper and is desperate
Not one of the better Kojak stories.
